    So far I've added an Advance folding bed cover and since removed it. Gave it to my son in Maine, he has an 05 2wd. GT perfect fit seat covers. Weathertech floor mats and window vent visors. Waag center brush/grill guard. Hose clamp tailgate mod. Turned off the seat belt chime. Added Ultra-Gauge. Trailer hitch. Softopper. Replaced sun visors with slide out style. Toyota bed extender. Had Firestone Destinations and now Michelin LTX AT2 in stock size. More mods to come; Fog lights, locking storage in bed, intermittent wipers. Now looking for Radio/HU upgrade. and maybe a lift way down the road.
    I got the Firestones after reading review upon review.

    I drive roads mostly just a little back roads once in a while. My main concern was snow since I have to report to work regardless of weather.

    Haven't had snow to deal with yet. I just had to get rid of those stock Dunlops before someone got killed.

    Orion,

    I never was able to get any mileage out of the Goodyear Wrangler tires. All other facets about them were ok. But for that kind of money, I should have gotten better milieage life.

    As for Firestone, Look how they failed to stand behind their tires with Ford a few years ago. Ford had to dump them from equipping anything Ford sold. The kicker was Ford and Firestone are related by family blood and Firestone would not stand behind the tires they sold. 65 years years of doing business and being related, Firestone stuck it to Ford. Ford had to buy tires from other sources and replace them for their customers. If they screw family over, think what you can expect.

    I have ran Michelins for the last 20 years. With your dirt road I would suggest Michelin LTX A/T2. Without the dirt road being a factor, I would say M/S2s.
